Climbing Kilimanjaro Isn't Exactly A Barrel Of Laughs, But Try Telling The Comic Relief Celebs That

There were some classic one-liners as they trekked up that mountain.

Anyone who saw Kiliminjaro: The Bigger Red Nose Climb on BBC One on Wednesday night would have felt like they were with the nine celebs every step of the way as they conquered the tallest freestanding mountain in the world.

But amongst the tears and sheer determination of Little Mix stars Jade Thirwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Love Island winner Dani Dyer, TV presenters Dan Walker, Alexander Armstrong, Anita Rani, Strictly judge Shirley Ballas, former MP Ed Balls and NFL star Osi Umenyiora there was a lot of laughter to be found.

Maybe it was the lack of sleep. Maybe it was the lack of oxygen. But there were some brilliant comedic moments as the group trekked the 55 gruelling miles up Kili.

Well, if they didn’t laugh, they’d cry. Mind you, there were a lot of tears too.

Here’s out round-up of the funniest moments...

BBC
Dani Dyer
I think the biggest challenge for me is gonna be... the walking.We really don't think Dani Dyer thought this thing through
BBC
Ed Balls
“I’m looking forward to it. I was a boy scout. I love a PIP.”We think Ed Balls is referring to a Poo In Public.
BBC
Dani Dyer
I’ve never been this cold. My nipples are just so hard, it hurts.Dani Dyer brings new meaning to the phrase 'feeling nippy'
BBC
Shirley Ballas
“I’m used to bathing three or four times a day so the prospect of washing your bits and bobs with a wet wipe is really… daunting.”We don't know what we're more shocked by: Shirley Ballas bathing 3-4 times a day, or the Strictly judge saying 'bits and bobs'
BBC
Dani Dyer
I’m quite scared of animals. Monkeys are cute and all that but I wouldn’t want to look one in the eye, cos I’d think ‘what’s your intentions?’ You can’t have a conversation with a monkey.Dani Dyer is no Dr Doolittle.
BBC
I feel like I had 3 glasses of dodgy red wine last night.Sorry, Ed, but you look like it too.
BBC
Why do you sing it so posh?Ed Ball’s rendition of Little Mix’s Shout Out To My Ex was more 'ra ra ra' than 'la la la', according to Leigh-Anne
BBC
The Bristol Stool Chart is an actual thing.
I’d like to thank my mum. My dad. And the flushing mechanism.Dan Walker had a poo on Day 2 and it was a BIG deal.
BBC
Dani Dyer
I’m in a pickle. I’m a like a little old lady who’s shit herself.Dani Dyer beautifully describes what altitude sickness really feels like.
BBC
We are stool brother and sister.Ed Balls and Leigh-Anne high five over the fact they have the same poo consistency.
BBC
I’ve never even climbed a climbing frame. I’m scared of slides.How Dani got up that mountain is anyone's guess.
